    There is so much for you to learn. You cant expect more than peanuts from IM when you're a beginner (unless you are lucky as hell)

    Do your best to find a "real" job mate!
    Putting everything on IM might fail and ruin you.

    That's pretty solid advice right there. Especially if you don't really have any "float" to work with. Most of the ways to make real money will require at least a litle investment. The beauty of IM is that you'll be able to learn and do it on the side until you're able to go full time with it.

    Definitely came to a good place to learn. Good luck!

    What kind of job did you have? Plenty of online jobs that you can be suitable for. Maybe not IM... but you can learn.

    As members mentioned, the hard truth is to find another job but you could practice here too. I understand your feeling and likely to share any help.

    If you're native US, feel free to be an article writer - part time allowances

    Don't bother if you have the expectation that you're going to have success with IM straight away.

    Find a "real" job, and whilst you're doing that, start learning and reading here. You're not going to make money "quick".

    I understand where you are coming from, but nothing will be handed to you.

    You have to find out and take MASSIVE action to start seeing results.

    My best advice is to sell a product or a service that you are good at.

    If you are good at web design, offer web development.

    If you are good at programming, offer coding.

    You could also go on freelance sites and register with all of them, then start posting your skills.

    It's a rough world brother and I totally feel you, but you have to go out there and just take massive action.

    Just interested, how did you find BHW?

    as others said, let's hear more about your experience and knowledge/skill-set.

    i admire you wanting to better your family.. No better motivation than your own child. Stay driven and stay reminded, and I think you will get into a better financial situation.

    Like all of the guys that replied to this thread so far.
    Which i'm 100% sure, were in your shoes someday or another (count me in...)

    You will have to find time to read this board. Cause it's packed with good information.
    Take your time, it doesn't come overnight.

    And you know what ? NEVER EVER GIVE UP YOU HEAR ME ! NEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR !!!!
    Might take months or even years before you really master something.

    Most IM methods can take time to make any significant money, especially if you're new to the scene. I recommend you start with freelancing, Fiverr is good.

    You can start with writing articles.
    You can browse through fiverr and see what is being offered on there. Find something you can do and offer more than others are offering
